: excitement in his recent posting about buying a bass.Go Nathan.I'd love to

: Any one care to confess? Jazz it up,The Mickster
Mickster, well, I still have all the basses Ive ever owned(how many different pieces they are in is another story) except for two. A BC Rich Mockingbird(neck-through) and a Warwick Thumb Bass I got rid of both of them cause they were neck heavy. Man do I wish I kept that Mockingbird now though.......man-o-man.....well peace
